NYC  Photographer Al Rodriguez Gives Life

 Images taken by beauty and fashion photographers have to tell a story. It goes beyond the “pretty model”, “pretty clothes”, and “pretty background”. Photographers of this sort have to treat their viewers like they are stupid and give them some sort of wonder. You can’t be in this field and think that because a model is “exotic looking”, you created a great fashion concept. You must take your viewers beyond the lens. I was admired by NYC fashion photographer Al Rodriguez and his portfolio because all of his concepts were exceptional. He captured the models in good looks from head to toe without them overexaggerating their poses. The backgrounds were simple but enough to provide energy for their viewer. Mr. Rodriguez is a freelance photographer and has an impressive resume. He has photographed the Spring collection of designers The Fabric Twinz (1.9.2010). Hip hop artist Fabulous, former 3LW and Cheetah Girl’s vocalist Adrienne Bailon, and VJ/Actress, Julissa B, have all been captured beautifully through Mr. Rodriguez camera. His work has made the covers and editorial spreads for magazines Signature Hits (http://www.signaturehits.com/) and Mob Candy (www.mobcandymag.com).
